Designing and Making a Ceremonial Dinner Gong

Fletcher, Neville H.


The acoustic and aesthetic design of a ceremonial dinner gong for the fiftieth anniversary of University House at the Australian National University is described. The gong is made from polished stainless steel with a walnut frame constructed from the same timber used in building the Great Hall, and the shape of the frame echoes the slightly sloping walls of the Hall in which it will be housed and used.
